Wētā Workshop Unleashed

Explore a fantastical film effects facility

Stop 2: Wētā Workshop Unleashed

Wētā Workshop Unleashed is a wildly imaginative and immersive experience that invites guests of all ages into a fantastical film effects facility, inspired and built by New Zealand’s Academy Award-winning Wētā Workshop.

The crew will take you on a guided journey through three fully developed and original film concepts: a nail-biting horror, a fantasy epic and a mind-bending sci-fi. They’ve written the scripts, storyboarded the scenes, completed the world-building and design – so you’ll walk a movie scene as it’s being shot.

Creative Workshops

After leaving the tour area, stop by the knowledgeable technicians who provide a number of Creative Workshops. Learn the techniques employed by the Wētā Workshop staff. The creative workshops offer the chance for you to set your creativity loose on the world and feature subjects from the horror, fantasy, and sci-fi genres (creative workshops require pre-bookings).
